Tenure: Freehold

The Fir was built in AD1900 (date stone) as a fine pair of semi-detached Victorian villas, of handsome cut and dressed stone under a slate roof (renewed 2007). The houses were acquired by the present owners in 2000, a skilful and imaginative programme of conversion work has resulted in turning this pair of houses into an exceptionally spacious detached single dwelling, providing versatile and adaptable living accommodation of seven bedrooms and four reception rooms arranged on two floors, with scope and potential to further convert the spacious attic (subject to necessary Building Regulations and Planning Permission). This is a rare and exciting opportunity for the discerning buyer seeking a large period house in a central town location and would easily suit a variety of uses, including large versatile home or Bed & Breakfast. For further details or to arrange a viewing please contact the Sole Agent. Gillingham offers a wide range of facilities and amenities, along with its outstanding Ofsted school, doctors’ surgeries, dentists, modern leisure centre, local bus routes and mainline railway station (Exeter—Waterloo).
